Tbe annnal time ior the appaaranoe of meteors is agiua approaohing, and during the next mOnth more or less exhibitions of those teirarkable bodies may be expootcd. It i» somewhat remark able that the fact of this regular period of mctcorio phenomena was not nuticcd until a modem date. There can no longer bo any doubt that, for some reason or other, in tbe month of August, cspccially the early portion of it, there ie if regular rceurring exhibition of metoors in the ekjk; and during tho past few years airtrono- mers and others interested in celestial wonders bave watobed, examined, and noted tho appearan ces, 90 that the mass of evid«'nec eolleoted has bcooaiu hi^iy iasp«ftant sr,l ob?1«I 4w ieating iHic value OT the ^ffcreat theories wlbich have been suggested for the explanation of tho myste ry—for a mystery they are, although so much study have wjen given to them. Two theories rc^iain proibinont, and but two, whioh aro at pro£cnt held by the learned men. The first, whioh attributes to the meteor a lunar origin, is abandoned by most of its former adher ents. This theory is in substance this—-that vol canoes in the moon throw c ut stones with such force _as to send them beyond the sphere of at traction of the moon, and into the sphere of at traction of the earth, no that instead of falling back to the surface of the orb from whioh they came, they descend to the earth, are ignited by the rapid passage which they make through our atmosphere, and vanish in the combustion, or reach the ground ocensionally in fragments This idea is not so violent and improbable as it may seem. The force of the attraction of gravitation depends on the weight and distance of the attract ing body. The simplest explanation may be made by imagining a body placed between the earth and the moon at exactly equal distances from each. It will fall to the earth, because the attraction in that direction is much greater. So as the body is advanced farther and farther towards the moon it continues within the superior attraction of the earth until quite near to the surface of the moon. The force estimated as necessary to hurl a body from the moon into the superior influence of tho earth’s attractioa is only a few times greater than that of a Parrott gun. The other theory, which is now more generally received, and which possesses some striking fea tures, is that the meteors form a zone around th« sun, perhaps several zones, like fragments of de cayed planets, lying all along tho track of the ancient orbits; that the world in its annual circuit around the sun passes every August, and at va rious other tin^, through the track and through tho debris which is scattered along it, the frag ments igniting as they ent»: our atmosphere. This theory is based on the regularity of the appearance, the general uniformity of direction, and other facts whieh have been acted by'obtMic- TCT8 It is a startKag and mMntftoont idea; nor is it violent. The asteroids whieh have been dis covered have already given rise to a similar idea in relation to another planet. That the planets dccay, break up, disappear in the course of ages, who can dispute? The immutability of tho heavens is but a poetic idea. All things change. Dccay is the order of nature. The human frame, one of tbe most ex quisite works of the Creator, is doomed to fall in to dust. Trees and flowers grow, and fade and perish. The mountains ortunblc—the valleys fill up. There is nothing of physical matter known to man which docs not go through tho process of disintegration, and what we call decay. Why should suns and stars be exempt from the uni versal law? Whatever bo thn true theory, the l>eauty of meteors as a part ot tbe great celMtial system is not to be doubted; and in a lew day^it will bo possible for any ono lying on hb ba^ in a elcar eight under the sky, to count scores of larger and smaller '^shooting stars,” whieh will eroHs the sky and vanish.—Jour, a/ Commerce IVOTICE.

MoDONALD Aug. 10. ^ 58 8tpd Bl»nk Warraotf tor ea)« ber«. Singular Coincidenee—Wednesday morning we noticcd that an incident oceurred down the bay un Sunday night, and that Mr J. J Love had been killed %nd Mr. I*trrce severely wounded. The body of the supposed Love was brought up by the steamer Natchez and his friends notified of the fact, who immediately took charge of the remains, and preparations were madn for the burial. That afternoon (Tuesday) a tclo^';raphic dispatch was sent to Mrs. Love, who resides a short distance up the Mobile and Ohio railroad, to come to the city. She did so, but by that time the supposed remain.^ ol her husband wcro well placed away in a packed coffin, and the body being in such a state of decomposition that her friends told her it was a matter of impossibility for him to be recognizcd by her; and for fear of some bad results, as she wa.s cxceedint;ly shaken by grief, they refused to open the colBn to give her the usual last lock. On Wednesday afternoon the corpse was esoorked to its last resting-placc by Mrs. Love and a large concourse of intimate friends and acquaintances. IjO and behold the sefmel. On Wedncbday night, the live body cf Mr Love was brought up on the steamer l)iek Kcyee and restored to his “widow ed’' wife and sorrowful friends; the mistake having occurred in sending the body Orom Navy Cove to the fort. It appears that four men were in the boat that the accident occurred on, and that some confusion occurrcd in rcspeet to them, and that the person who .sent up the body to the fort told the one in charge of it that it was that of Joseph Love. He delivered it from person to party until it was forwarded, when it has since been proven that the dead man wap Dennis Mur« phy, also a very worthy citizen. The person of the deceased was about the same height and size as Love, and the haste and confusion in sending up the body caused tho mistake, whieh has ter minated in anything elso than a joke. It is also stated that, on the morning of Wed nesday, the newspapers containing the announce- meui of his death and funeral notice was road to Mr. Love at Fort Morgan. He immediately tel egraphed to a lady friend, (he not knowing that his wife was in the city), that he was safe and all right. The dispatch was received just before the funeral serviecs were performed, and, owing to the excitement at the time, she, thinking it some trival matter, laid the dispatch iu her work- basket and continued her preparation for the fu neral, and did not read it until Love made his appearance at her house at 12 o’clock at night, when the feelings of his wife and all present can be better imagined than described.—Mobile Trib.
